  2. Are you an artist in need of a home studio?

    Whether you're a professional sculptor, an amateur painter or an established cartoonist, you might like the idea of having your very own home studio.

  3. How to choose shades for a young child's room

    Furnishing and decorating a room for a young child is a lot different than how you'd go about doing the same for an adult-only space. Not only do you have to take taste preferences into account, but you have to really think about the functionality, practicality and safety of every aspect.

  4. How to nail the vintage modern look

    The vintage modern decor style that's been popping up all over the place sounds like a total oxymoron, but it's easier to grasp than you think. Instead of opting for a strictly modern interior with no sense of personality or quirky flair, or sticking with a straightforward vintage aesthetic, mix the two together for a style that feels just right. Here's how!

    Mix up the eras
    For a modern take on vintage design, avoid using pieces that are all from the same time period. After all, you probably don't want guests to feel like they've just stepped into the '70s every time they enter your living room! Play around with different items from the 1800s, 1920s, 1950s and 1980s. It's a lot more fun that way.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when you and your children start planning out the interior design of the room.

    Safety comes first
    To make sure that no accidents happen in the bathroom, certain safety measures should be implemented. For example, slippery surfaces like the tiles in front of the tub or the floor of the shower should be covered with mats, while drain and faucet covers can prevent kids

  6. Two or More Blinds in a Single Window Opening

    As you measure your windows, you may find a window opening or two that are very large widths. In some cases it may be a picture window or an opening that has multiple windows within that opening. There are a few different options worth considering that have their respective positives and negatives.
    3 blinds in a single window
    Option 1: A single blind or shade 
    Payless Decor blinds and shades have maximum widths that can be six, seven, or eight feet or longer, and thus can cover many large openings. One thing to consider is the weight of the window treatment and how much you are going to  want to open/close it. Faux Wood blinds, for instance, can be very heavy and a single blind of a large width may be somewhat difficult to lift. Many of our shades in very large
